I'm loving this thing... these pics were taken a week or so ago and since the warm weather hit everything is growing like crazy... I also mulched with fresh grass clippings and the nitrogen is really pumping up my plants.



My first SFG! Garden1

my SFG... I'm going to mulch it, surround the perimeter with landscaping timbers, put gravel walkways through it, put in a cistern & a drip irrigation system and maybe get some chickens to tend it!

WoW your garden is looking great nice lay out future plans sound awesome deffinatly post up more pics as you progress. Did you start those strawberry's from seed or transplants? Im looking into strawberry's planting but have never seen seeds available anywhere only trnasplants.

Be careful on the nitrogen around fruiting vegtables it helps them grow yes but too much nitrogen in the soil and youll get big healthy leafy plants with a low yield on fruiting.

thanks I'm pretty proud of it....

I bought those strawberries from Ace Hardware... they came in bunches of 25 tied up with a rubber band. They had single plant transplants but they were a lot more expensive and sold per 9 plants. I'm pretty sure Ace is just buying the bunches of 25 from a local strawberry grower.

I'm guessing they are June bearers because the groups of 25 were probably runners that were picked off of mother plants and I've heard day neutral and everbearing don't produce many runners.

When I got them they hadn't even hardly opened up but with 3 days they were leafed out. They are about twice as big now as when I planted them.

Now if Mel would tell me how to grow morels in my SFG I'd be on cloud nine! My first SFG! Icon_lol

Your gardening space looks great! Now, you need to do like Mel suggests........get yourself a big 'ol rocking chair and stick it right in the middle of your beds so you can enjoy your little garden utopia!

Nice looking set up cliftyman. Can't wait to see the pics of it once your master plan has been completed. Good luck.

great garden! Thanks for the photos - keep 'em coming.

Choksaw, historically alpine strawberries were the only ones one really could start from seed, although there is a new full size variety for which seeds are being sold.
